- Reaction score
Isn't that kind of the joke? He's singing about being a dancer and you don't see his feet? The puppetry sells the illusion.
He later shows Kermit dancing with Gene Kelly so obviously it was not a technical limitation thing. It's a joke. It's a subtle joke, but still a joke.I wasn't aware it was meant to be a joke, I just always thought of it as a standard production number.
I didn't notice that that was the joke when I was a kid (not until I saw the joke explained online), was confused by Statler and Waldorf's reaction on audio releases ("on the show that wasn't funny, but on a record it doesn't make sense"). I thought the humor came from the fact that it showed multiple Kermit's (I also thought the scene in TMM with two Kermit's was supposed to be funny).I wasn't aware it was meant to be a joke, I just always thought of it as a standard production number.
